American Made Cars – Sadly Chevrolet doesn’t make the Cut
Japanese Cars Made in America... Why not Chevrolet?
Chevrolet is becoming the furthest thing from “American Made”. The last number I saw had 52% of Chevrolet jobs outside the United States of America. If you want Cars Made in America don't think Chevrolet. Chevrolet is hardly the most American of American Made cars. This year the most American made car is the Toyota Camry – that’s right a Japanese company is more “American” than Chevrolet! In fact they are more American than Ford or Chrysler too! Armed with this knowledge it shouldn’t surprise you to know the #2 American made car on this years list is the Honda Accord.
So don’t buy into the Chevrolet Advertising campaign. The Government is the primary promoter of the outright lie that Chevrolet is somehow American Made. The Government has no business being in the Automobile business. They are using Tax Dollars and Fiat money to promote products in direct competition with companies that are actually making real efforts to manufacturer vehicles in the United States of America.
The Federal Government GAVE $19 Billion Dollars to GMAC (The finance arm of General Motors) so they could lend money to you to buy cars! GAVE GAVE GAVE. And it has not been paid back! How is this in any way fair to Ford Motors who is faced with finding their own financing and operating profitably?
When you buy a Toyota Camry or a Honda Accord you are keeping money in the American Economy! You are employing Americans. Buy a GM car and you are perpetuating the very problem that will lead to the Nationalization of all US industry and destroy the country.
Besides who wants any of the Crap GM made cars? GM has nothing that is better than the Camry or the Accord. If you believe so then you are simply buying into the lie. The TV ads claim resale value, etc… but the reality is that the Toyota and Honda products are PROVEN reliable and have PROVEN resale value.
And when you buy Toyota or Honda you are employing Americans.
If you want to buy a traditional American Nameplate then Buy FORD. Ford is making solid inroads against the Japanese Manufacturers. Ford is building quality vehicles and Ford is doing it by building most of their American Sold cars right here in the United States of America.
And for those of you who want to argue Global Economy this and that. Go ahead. It’s your prerogative. But I care about America… not the World. And the more people spend money that goes to foreign interests the worse the USA economy becomes for the working man. If you are for Global Trade then you might as well move to one of those countries. I’m not being short sighted. The money that flows into a Corporation as a result of Global trade does not employ Americans. That money goes to the Ownership of the corporations. And I don’t care how rich some corporation becomes on paper.
If the money doesn’t flow through to the American Worker the country suffers.
Made in America - look past the marketing hype!
